Kalyana Rasam

Kalyana Rasam has a wonderful taste and flavor. I always wonder the speciality of rasam being served in Marriages. It has a unique taste with tangy and spice well balanced. The flavour of pepper makes this a big hit. Normally when we do tomato dal rasam, we put the rasam powder and make the tamarind juice boil well to get rid off the raw smell of rasam powder. Here in kalyana rasam, we add the spice powder only at the end which makes it very tasty. Lets see the recipe now.

Dear Aunty , rasam is jus awesome. I always try different versions of rasam but this is sooo yummy. my daughter who is 4 years old liked it so much.. thanks for the wonderful recipe. Also would like to know the vada curry which is generally prepared as a combination for sponge idly in tamilndau.i used to have it in my Vellore VIT hostel.

Super rasam mami! Awesome! Made it for the second time today!

Dear aunty, why you didnt put garlic and fenugreek. . ?

superb- fantastic

KALYANA RASAM was tried at our family today. SIMPLY SUPERB.

Nice article. There are lot of packed rasam powders such as http://hemsfoods.com/products/rasam-powder. Do you think they would be useful for preparing the rasam?

For Kalyana Rasam, freshly ground rasam masala would be the best. For normal tomato dal rasam, we can use packed rasam powders

mami i tried kalyana rasam today.. it came really good.. thanks mami

Tried this today at home with a tsp of jaggery added to the rasam for slight sweetness. Best rasam ever!! Thanks for this recipe.

Hi aunty Plz tell me tuvar dal quantity to be mashed in cooker...

hi Nithya, I have already mentioned it as 1 tablespoon of thur dal in the ingredients table.

Awesome!! I jus have a doubt adding both tomatoes and tamarind doesn't make it sour? Tku

Hi Meena, The quantity of tamarind and tomatoes are added in such a way to take care of the tangy flavour. so don't worry it won't make the rasam more sour.

Superb recipe! Thank you so much!
